Chapter 5. Approval or Denial of Applications for Phased Retirement

5.1 Procedures for Approving Officials

5.1.1 Approving officials should normally issue a decision within 30 days after a completed application for phased retirement is received by the HR office. If the decision is not issued in this timeframe, the approving official will notify the applicant regarding the status of the application.

5.1.2 Approvals shall be in writing, with an established end date for the phased retirement period and the execution of a written agreement committing the employee to entering full retirement at the end of the approved period, as a condition of approval prior to the employee entering phased retirement.

5.1.3 Approving officials may approve employee requests to enter phased retirement for up to two years. An extension may be approved when there is a continuing need in the organization for the individual's skill set or knowledge in accordance with Chapter 9 of this directive. The maximum total time an employee may remain in phased retirement status is three years.

5.1.4 Approving officials will forward approved applications to the HR office.

5.1.5 Once approved, employees shall file a retirement application, in accordance with instructions from the NSSC.

5.1.6 For denied applications, approving officials will include a written explanation of the reason(s) for denial and forward to the HR office, which will provide the supervisor and the employee the decision along with the written explanation.

5.2 Phased Retirement Applicants from Other Agencies

A phased retiree from another Agency may continue in phased retirement status when hired into a NASA position, subject to approval by the same level of management delegated to approve any other phased retirement application.
